  • Doubt and the image
Kiron Robinson is an artist interested in the possibility of using the ideas of doubt and belief as constructive devises. Continually chasing ways of articulating, that which by its own definition is beyond articulation, leads to a paradoxical reasoning in Robinson’s work, which unravels as it constructs. Materials are chosen and placed with great care. Since 2003 Robinson has exhibited his work widely both nationally and internationally. Recent exhibitions include Immanent Landscape, Kurumuya Museum, Japan; Here's the tender coming (Whoopee) We're all going to die, Pallas Project, Dublin; Encounters with the Uncanny, Gippsland Regional Art Gallery, Sale; If I take the time will I get it back, Sarah Scout, Melbourne; Unseen Forces, Institute of Contemporary Art, Sydney; And the Difference Is, NUS, Singapore; 17th of December 1987, West Space, Melbourne; Octopus 8, Softness in the Rock, Hope in Disappointing Times, Gertrude Contemporary Art Space, Melbourne; Manila Bites, Green Papaya Art Space, Manila. Robinson has also partaken in a number of residencies including the inbound residency program through Apexart, New York, and from 2005 – 2007 Robinson was a Gertrude Contemporary Studio resident. Kiron Robinson is represented by Sarah Scout in Melbourne http://www.sarahscoutpresents.com
